Turkish Super Lig outfit Antalyaspor have completed the loan signing of Danish striker of Ghanaian descent Haji Wright from Danish top-flight side SønderjyskE.
Wright, 23 joins the Turkish club ahead of the 2021/22 season with an option to sign a permanent deal when he impresses.
The former Schalke 04 prospect before moving to Turkey, came close to joining Swedish powerhouse Malmo FF during the last winter transfer window.
“I would like to thank our president, management, Aytaç Altay and everyone working at the club for their warm welcome, who made my transfer and gave me this opportunity. I am very happy to be in Antalyaspor, ” the former VVV-Venlo man told the club’s official website.
Club’s vice president Sabri Gulel also was full of joy for the capture of the young striker.
“He is young and strong, and has a special football talent for every team. I hope he will love our beautiful Antalya and will not want to leave here. This season will be very successful. He scored 13 goals for his club last year. I expect more here. I welcome him aboard,” Gulel said to the same club’s forum.
Both Haji and Hanif Wright are cousines to Isaac Nana Addai Gibson, who currently plays club football for Rhode Island Red FC.
